Professional Experience
Dr. Jason Clement joined the MNE department this fall as a new Instructor. Originally from Michigan, Clement studied mechanical engineering at Oakland University, where he completed his bachelors of science in engineering in 2010. Undergraduate co-operative education and research experience led him to pursue graduate studies at the University of Tennessee, where he received a graduate research fellowship through the NSF EPSCoR program. Clement completed his master’s in 2013 and doctorate in 2016, both in mechanical engineering. His research has primarily focused on the investigation of heat and mass transport in electrochemical power systems via distributed diagnostic techniques.

Dr. Clement has extensive prior experience teaching undergraduate fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and mechanics of materials, and enjoys mentoring students through their own academic pursuits. He is enthusiastic about training future engineers and aims to equip them with the problem-solving skills necessary to address engineering challenges of the future.

Research
Upon completion of his PhD, Clement worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Tennessee—in collaboration with the Oak Ridge National Lab Manufacturing Demonstration Facility—where he investigated variability in material properties of additively manufactured plastic composites. Clement has a diverse research expertise in applied thermal-fluid sciences, experimental design, diagnostics and instrumentation, and computer-aided design and manufacturing; however, education is his passion.
